Oklahoma Hospital Debunks Story That Said the Hospital was Overrun by Victims of Ivermectin

Objectivity 4.7 | Credibility 4.7 | Relevance 3.9

KFOR News in Oklahoma recently interviewed Dr. Jason McElyea who claimed an Oklahoma hospital had been overrun by people who overdosed on the Covid-19 treatment ivermectin. This, McElyea said, resulted in gunshot victims and others being turned away or left waiting for emergency care. The story spread like wildfire across many main stream media platforms who obviously never verified it. Later the hospital debunked the story, saying they have not treated any patients related to taking ivermectin, and they have not turned away any patients seeking emergency care.
